Judicial Clerks

Gibson Dunn recognizes the significant value of the clerkship experience.  Many of our lawyers have clerked for judges and justices on U.S. federal and state appellate and trial courts across the nation.

In addition to supporting our summer associates who want to pursue clerkships, Gibson Dunn actively recruits judicial clerks who did not spend their summer with us.  From either route, judicial clerks who join us may immerse themselves in the cutting-edge, high-stakes appellate and general litigation matters, and “bet-the-company” cases that we routinely undertake.  Alternatively, they may opt to build their careers in the equally rich, dynamic and complex range of transactional matters that we regularly handle on behalf of Fortune 500 companies and their international counterparts.

Generally, judicial clerks who join us directly after completing a judicial clerkship receive class credit for their clerkship(s) and a competitive clerkship signing bonus.  Judicial clerks wishing to explore a career at Gibson Dunn should submit an application directly via our applicant portal.
